Late spring flowers traditionally include those flowers which have been prolific all season, such as roses, lilies, and hydrangea. But one bloom which is more available at this time of year is the amazing peony. This coveted flower is beloved by many, likely due to its extravagant petals and lush presentation. The peony is luxurious, generous, and opulent – and is a favorite of professional floral designers when working with late spring flowers.
Amazing Blooms: Peonies come in over 1,000 varieties, can measure more than 10 inches across, and the peony plant is capable of living to approximately 100 years old – producing blooms the entire time!
More Peony Fun Facts: The peony is cultivated natively in Asia, Southern Europe, and Western North America. It is the official flower of China, as well as the state flower of Indiana.
